20 extra staff for GE

ENERGY multinational GE will take on another 20 engineering and IT employees this year as it expands its business in Ireland.

The company, which operates two power plants here, is under contract to Bord Gais.

The technical staff will go to a division focused on systems that maintain and improve electricity grids -- if this business expands, it could take on a further 30 to 60 staff.
